Nelson Mandela: South Africa holds its breath once
Daniel HowdenNelson Mandela was visited by family members on Sunday at the hospital in South Africa where he was spending a third night receiving treatment for a recurring lung infection.
There has been no update on the 94-year-old’s health since Saturday when doctors described his condition as “serious but stable”. The spokesman for the presidency, Mac Maharaj, said it was “positive” that he was breathing unassisted, but warned he would only issue an update if there was news from doctors.
His eldest surviving daughter, Makaziwe Mandela and Ndileka Mandela, one of his 17 grandchildren, were seen leaving the hospital where he is believed to be in Pretoria on Saturday. His wife, the noted human rights activist Graca Machel, has remained by his bedside.
